On Tuesday, October 3, 2023, the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee issued a public censure to attorney Darryl Wayne Humphrey for violating rules of professional conduct.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Darryl Wayne Humphrey,” with case no. 71009-9-DN.

The censure stems from Humphrey’s failure to comply with three conditions in an April 8, 2022 order reinstating his law license. The conditions were imposed after Humphrey received a disciplinary suspension on September 25, 2017, and filed a petition for reinstatement on June 2, 2021.

The board found that Humphrey’s actions violated Rules of Professional Conduct 8.4(d) (conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice) and 8.4(g) (willful violation of a court order). The public censure is a formal reprimand and warning to Humphrey and serves as a notice to the public and the legal community that the board takes violations of professional conduct seriously.

According to avvo.com, Mr. Humprey is a domestic violence attorney in Memphis, Tennessee. He attended the University of Tennessee College of Law. He acquired his law license in Tennessee in 1994.
